The Clements Scout Ranch is home to Trevor Rees-Jones Scout Camp and Camp Meisenbach. The ranch has over 3,300 acres of towering pines and hardwoods with four well-stocked lakes.
Trevor Rees-Jones Scout Camp has nine weekend campsites with two large pavilions and 19 summer campsites complete with a dining hall, headquarters building, first aid lodge, swimming pool, waterfront, horses, the 60 ft. John Coffman Climbing Tower, the Roy & Frances Rea COPE Center, and many more traditional program areas. Trevor Rees-Jones Scout Camp is also home to a first class Museum of Natural History. A variety of wildlife trails, great fishing on all four lakes, rowboats, canoes, rifle, shotgun and archery ranges are available.
Camp Meisenbach has eight weekend campsites with two large pavilions and beautiful Lake Murchison which provides 160 acres of great fishing, several fishing docks and a large pavilion along the water's edge.
The Roy & Frances Rea COPE Center located at Trevor Rees-Jones Scout Camp is a challenge course designed for boys at least 13 years old. The programs have been carefully developed to build trust in one another and strengthen the self esteem of the participants. While solving problems and accomplishing challenging tasks participants overcome obstacles while swinging, climbing, jumping, zipping and camping together. There is a fee for each boy to attend a weekend session.
The John Coffman Climbing & Rappelling Complex is also located at Trevor Rees-Jones Scout Camp. This 60 ft. wooden structure is for climbing and rappelling activities for Scout Troops, Varsity Teams and Venturing Crews.
The ranch also has a herd of horses just waiting to be ridden. Trail rides can be reserved on Saturday only.
Trevor Rees-Jones Scout Camp and Camp Meisenbach have some of the best-stocked fishing lakes in the State of Texas. Just bring your rod and reel along with some bait, and you just might land yourself a giant largemouth bass.
